Well might as well start the new forum off right

Here is a picture of my 90 FLTCU

I have all the touring stuff but it is off the bike

Since this picture I've put an Ultima 113 motor on it, a 6 speed tranny, Had the rear stock rim widened and put a 180 tire on it

Its got a lot of torque (I think it was close to 120 before the pipe)

While its not a wicked fast bike, Its fun riding around with all that torque.. You can light up the tire easy.

Cool... a new forum. I'm thinking this is the reason you were asking us if we had sportbikes and/or cruisers in that poll.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

dunno what it weighs but is a heavy touring bike...

If you were griping about the ground clearance on the goldwing for sure you sure wouldn't do well with this one.

Not much lean angle before the boards start dragging but Its comfortable and a fun bike.

FLTCU
Lets see if I can get this right
FL is the style of the chassis T is for a tourglide CU is Ultra Classic
why they did it backwards I don't know.

Nice bikes,

Vivid, Thats a pretty hot picture of you

Mine's pretty much a work in progress, but is being pushed aside for awhile while for the track day bike ....
only so much time/money to go around, at least until that whole Jay Leno budget comes through

Its kind of hard to pick one universal bike, Most have some attribute they do really well and are OK at the rest of what they do.... I may end up selling the HD at some point, but am having fun with it while I have it.
